Safari Parade...

Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water. -W. C. Fields

I ordered the new Paper Works Co stamps, Safari Friends as Soon as I saw the banner on Splitcoast a few weeks ago...SO Cute!!!! They came yesterday (pretty good from Canada, don't ya think???) and I Had to use them. I got them all colored and the background all sponged and realized that the background I made was too small to fit all three I decided to group them together with the hippo behind the lion....Ummmm, MISTAKE!!! It looked like the Hippo was trying for a promotion! I decided since I deal with enough Butt Kissing at work I would rework it. :)

  3. ROTFLOL. Too funny!!!! These stamps are adorable, even if they are butt kissing. Love how you did that clouds!

  4. This is such a lovely card, I am loving the stamps that you have used. Hugs Linda x

  5. Definitely the "fixed" one. Maybe that's what the hippo needs: to be fixed! LOL

    But the first one would be perfect for certain situations, right? {wink}

  6. PERSONALLY, I like the butt kissing one!!!! LOL!!! You are so creative!!! LMBO!!! It totally made me laugh when I saw it!!!
